Chuck Schumer thinks Donald Trump is “really dumb” for doubting the intelligence community’s conclusions about the alleged Russian cyberattacks.
The House Minority Leader said Trump shouldn’t pick fights with the CIA and FBI because they have lots of ways to get back at the president-elect.
“Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” Schumer told Rachel Maddow (see video starting at 0:28). “For a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s being really dumb to do this.”

Trump has repeatedly expressed skepticism about the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion (based on anonymous leaks) that Russia likely interfered with the election through cyberattacks. This begs the question: What kind of top-secret intelligence agencies allow so many leaks?
Like many Americans, Trump doesn’t want to blame the Russians for “hacking” the election without concrete evidence.
However, mainstream liberal media and Hillary Clinton allies like Chuck Schumer have already played judge, jury and executioner even though they’re basing their conclusions on anonymous leaks from the CIA.
Meanwhile, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange told Fox News anchor Sean Hannity that Russia is NOT the source of the hacked emails published by Wikileaks.
“We have said repeatedly over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government, and it is not a state party,” said Assange.
Assange explained (for the millionth time) that Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta fell for a phishing scam a 14-year-old could have engineered:
We published several emails which show Podesta responding to a phishing email. Podesta gave out that his password was the word ‘password.’
A 14-year-old kid could have hacked Podesta that way.
Maybe the reason why Trump (and many Americans) have a hard time believing the Russia-hacked-the-election hysteria is because the media has repeatedly jumped to conclusions without evidence.
Case in point: On Monday, the Washington Post was forced to correct an alarmist story they ran last Friday declaring that Russia definitely hacked the U.S. electric grid through a computer at Burlington Electric in Maine. The story was bleated around the clock on CNN, MSNBC and other media outlets.
While Burlington Electric issued an immediate statement denying WaPo’s fake news story, the paper kept the bogus article active on its website for almost 4 full days before issuing a retraction.
And these are the people that we’re supposed to believe when they say they “know for sure” that Russian swayed the election.
